Here are my favorites from the week.
1. It was my birthday! :) There is nothing like spending a birthday with 5 and 6 year olds! I got many, many hugs, cards, homemade gifts... and they never walked down the hall more quietly than when I did my magic, "Birthday POOF" over the line to quiet them down. Unfortunately, it is only once a year... but I use the magic "POOF" any chance I get when we line up to quiet down- "Snowflake POOF," "Lunch POOF," "Tuesday POOF," and when they need it the most "SUPER POOF." For some reason, it holds magical quieting powers. OH and the best part is when they ask how old I am and I say, "How old do you THINK I am?" and they say, "Twenty?" YEP! :) After school, I went out to dinner with my family and my parents and we had a great night. :)
2. It was OUTSIDE FUN DAY at school! Since it was on Flag Day, our class was Patriotic!
3. We finished up our Father's Day books. We decorated a "My Special Dad" book, wrote and illustrated some pages. Here are some favorites:
"Go do your chores!"
He told me that "maybe" always means yes. :)
This says, "No way, Jose' "
I think this dad loves rootbeer!
I loved how she spelled ravioli.
Jim Gaffigan would be proud of this dad, lovin those hot pockets!
Now I know where this little girl gets her love of shopping and fashion!
Four-wheel on our four-wheelers
I am thinking that this little girl's poppy LOVES to golf! :)
Happy Father's Day to my wonderful dad! He is practically perfect in every way (like Mary Poppins says!). Maybe completely perfect! He is so kind, loving, giving, patient- I don't think he has ever said a bad word in his life or even done anything wrong ever! And yes... I am exactly like my mom! HA HA- but... she is equally as wonderful- so ... I am VERY BLESSED!!! (Rereading that it makes it sound very cocky, like I am saying I am wonderful just like my mom- but... you get it- :)
Mom and Dad!
4. This weekend is the 33rd Annual Strawberry Festival in our town. It is a big deal around here! Friday night is the block party. My husband and I always love walking around and seeing people. I love the parade because so many of my kids are in it- and are always SO amazed to see me outside of the classroom! :)
